This ride has wildlife, beautiful scenery, exceptionally light traffic, and hills-even a 40-mph downhill. It also has history, as the area is dotted with sites that were used as forts during the Indian wars and the Revolutionary War, although most of the sites are now nothing more than a marker or a name. The ride starts at the Montour Preserve, centered on Lake Chillisquaque. Here you can ride, dig for fossils, fish, boat, watch birds, hike or enjoy the visitor center. Terrain: mostly rolling hills, except for a steep climb over the Muncy Hills both to and from Muncy. Some township roads are gravel or oiled-and-chipped (gravel laid on oil and pressed into the road by the weight of passing vehicles). For comfort, a wider-tire cross, hybrid, or mountain bike is recommended, although the ride can also be done on a thin-tire road bike. Traffic is generally light except near the towns.
